HC Deb 05 February 1948 vol 446 c310W
74. Sir P. Hannon

asked the Minister of Health if he will consider the desirability in the allocation of houses in industrial centres engaged upon production for export, of priority in favour of work-people who seek housing accommodation in proximity to the works in which they are employed.

Mr. Bevan

The selection of tenants is a matter for the local authorities, subject to the requirements of Section 85 of the Housing Act, 1936. I feel sure that authorities in industrial areas take into account as far as possible the consideration referred to in the Question.
